Instructive. Thank you, GM Khachiyan! :)
Thank you Grandmaster Khachiyan
Огромное, спасибо, Меликсет! Весьма и весьма поучительно. Я вот о сохранении оппозиции-плеча не знал, хотя ход ed5, конечно, видел. еще раз спасибо!
Thank you Grandmaster Khachiyan.
Really helpful information here and a great endgame study!
how did you know it is morning while I'm wathcing this? that's just creepy man
Great Video! Thank you!
This is Endgame gold sir. Connecting & walking us so masterfully from the pactical "Gregorev (sp?) Rule" of the connected passers vs defended passer beyond the forth rank, ...to the amazingly demonstrated "Principles of Shouldering", while assuring the "King-line" rule is always observed to "maintain balance" in order to preserve draw (or win, when wrong opponent pawns are pushed), ...is pure chess Tactics & Endgame gold. Agree w ealdor, ...simply outstanding. A Big-time thanks on this video GMMelik! For those of us who love all-things-tactical, yet profess (or perhaps confess) an aversion to Endgame study; you sure know how win-over the convert. More please?
Thank you for your information
Outstanding. You have a great talent for explaining concepts.
Thanks......getting to love endgames
by GM Melikset Khachiyan
Today GM Khachiyan provides another extremely complex, critical moment, in which the wrong path was chosen by not calculating accurately. He talks about the practical factors that go into choosing which tricky variation to follow through with, and he provides a very useful piece on advice on how/when to first establish equality (a draw) before committing to a dangerous line that might offer winning chances.
